Dick Whittington is out to seek his fortune! He’s off to London with his faithful cat Puss and hopes to make some money, meet the girl of his dreams, and who knows, maybe even someday be the Lord Mayor. However, things are never that easy, with the evil King Rat framing our hero for theft and the local constabulary on his tail, how will Dick clear his name and win the heart of his girl?
